PreCentral: Write for webOS Nation - you, yes you

Recommended Posts

webOS Nation

You know who you are. You're the one that lives and breathes webOS. You've racked up hundreds of dollars in App Catalog charges, use your TouchPad more than your laptop, roll with your own custom-coded kernel, and have a stash of spare Pre3 phones and TouchPads in safety deposit box for a rainy day. Or you just happen to find webOS fascinating and love using it and just want a chance to write about it on the best webOS blog with the biggest readership and most awesome and engaged community you'll find on this side of open source.

By now you've likely figured out what topic we're introducing here - we're looking for new, exciting, and engaging souls to write for webOS Nation. webOS is obviously near and dear to our hearts here, so it really helps if it's the same to you. We're looking for hardy individuals who love (and sometimes hate) webOS apps, those that can hack through Enyo code like a mutant combination of Bear Grylls and Chuck Norris, or those that know the webOS community better than the back of their own hand. What we're not looking for: columnists, editorialist, or angry badgers.

It's important that you be able to dedicate time to this endeavour. For this to work we need a few dedicated souls who can take the time to write at least a few times a week. We won't lie, the pay won't be good enough for you to quit your day job anytime soon, but for the chance to get paid by writing about something you love, is there anything better? Okay, there's bacon, but this is a very close second.

Here's what to do: send an email to [email protected] with the title of "writer [your full name here]" as the title. Except, you know, put your full name in the space where the brackets are. Your email should include some information about who you are, what you love about webOS, and a link to your webOS Nation forum profile.

You should also include two plain text samples of your writing about webOS (show some variety if you can, review an app and rewrite one of our awfully-composed news items if you so like). Do not send us attachments, links to Google Docs, or smoke signals. Also, you must be 18 years old or older - we appreciate your enthusiasm, dear youngster, your time will come.

Derek's going to be evaluating these applications personally, and he gets angry when directions aren’t followed. We do appreciate creativity, and there's plenty of space for creativity within these bounds - go out of these pretty wide bounds and we're apt to skip over your application.

Interested? You made it this far into this rambling call for writers, so clearly you are. Follow the guidelines set out above, get your applications in by February 29th, and come a day in the near future you might just find yourself writing for the world's best webOS site in the world.

      Hi there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
       
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler
      Türkiye / İstanbul

      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you
      Turkey, Istanbul

      It is not understood why this functionality disappeared in WebOS 5 ...
      I have an Oled CX and I don't have this option.
      Why?

      LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
      The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant

      Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”

      An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
      The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.
